This was an alright book, though not quite what I expected. The book was about the life of Alastair Sim and his wife Naomi, as written by Naomi. What I was expecting from the book was an in depth biography of the actor. It was not so much. The first 69 pages of the book was about Naomi's life growing up including details of her past with her mother, he aunts, her sister, and various schools she went to.
Given that the book is only pages, this meant that a mere 82 pages were about the actor. Th This was an alright book, though not quite what I expected.
The remaining pages briefly described Alastair Sim's childhood. Some basic background information was given, but pretty much it starts with when he met his wife when she was a teenager. Describing how she started spending time with him, how her mother adored Sim, and how eventually Naomi was taken in as a secretary of Sim's.
It did not take a lot of time before they were married.

They had one daughter, along with a number of surrogate sons, who were actors, including actor George Cole, whom Alastair starred with in numerous plays and movies. The book mainly reviews Alastair Sim's theatre work, with minimal focus on his movie work. As a fan having watched him in the greatest version of "A Christmas Carol", I found it interesting to read about his overall acting career.
It would have been very interesting to see him on stage, but thankfully we have some movies to see him in. The book may have minor markings which are not specifically mentioned.
